Winger Kris Versteeg, a member of the 2010 Stanley Cup winner than ended Chicago's 49-year drought without the greatest chalice in sports, was reacquired ...

Montreal Canadiens Cross The Sacrebleu Line

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Randy Cunneyworth was named interim coach of the Montreal Canadiens this weekend when the team fired Jacques Martin.
